need access to a a defunct blog that hasn't been used since 2009

  1. Hello -
    I work with the Region 2000 (Virginia) Small Business Development Center. This morning we found that previous employees of the Region 2000 SBDC used WordPress for a blog. We no longer have access to the blog and would like to. This is the address: http://region2000sbdc.wordpress.com/ The blog hasn't been used since 2009. Can you help us regain access to the blog? We can provide documentation that we are, in fact, Region 2000 SBDC and that the person listed as the owner is no longer with our organization.
    Thanks.

    The blog I need help with is r2000sbdc.wordpress.com.

  2. If you cannot remember the login information for a WordPress.com account, your best bet is to try the account recovery process here:

    https://wordpress.com/wp-login.php?action=recovery

    Due to the private nature of information required for account recovery and the public nature of these forums, we cannot help with account recovery here.

  3. Hi Rootjosh -
    It's not that I can't remember the password, it's that no one on staff currently ever had the password. The account in question was started by someone who is no longer with our organization. We would like to have access to the account again. Is this possible?

  4. That's going to be a tough thing. You've got to prove that the account is yours and there are only a few specific ways you can do that.

    However, in any case, the account recovery team are the ones who can help you.

  5. since all blogs are owned by people and their email account - you have admitted that you want to steal someone else's property - yes someone set it up on behalf of a group - but it is still the former employee's blog

    best bet is to find the former employee and get them to transfer the blog to a company email address - with today's internet finding the person should not be too hard

    This would be the simplest solution.
